Modern Roses

Happy Friday!  So glad the weekend is close on the horizon. :-)


A little while back, I had just received the Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles dies, and wanted to test them to make sure they worked well.  (They do, but with a little extra pressure, because the detail is so fine.)  I made two cards:  one light and one dark. I paired the 'roses' with die-cut leaves, a PTI Wonderful Words: Congrats die, patterned papers and sequins.




As you can see, I did not cut through the entire Circle Scribbles dies. That was not by design, but an accident.  When I was testing the new dies, and had not applied enough pressure, this was the result.  I decided I'd go with it, instead of tossing them into the trash.  They have a beauty all their own this way! 

Which card do you like better?

P.S. I LOVE reading your comments. Thank you for taking the extra moment to do so!!



Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery - Stampin' Up!; gray stripe - Momento; chevron (I forget!  Twirly Girly by Chickaniddy, maybe??) Accessories & Tools: Circle Scribbles, Wonderful Words: Congrats dies - Papertrey Ink; Modern Leaves dies - Avery Elle; silver, gold, Sand, Sparkling Clear sequins - Pretty Pink Posh; Foliage die - Spellbinders

Love this - the colors, the graphic shapes, that "retro" die cut sentiment. What a great design.
